Best known as the fellow Yankee who broke Babe Ruth's home run record with 61 home runs in the memorable 1961 season, Roger Maris was also one of the finest players of his time, appearing in more World Series than any other player of the 1960s. In 1960, his first year with the Yankees, Maris was tops in the league with a .581 slugging percentage and beat out teammate Mickey Mantle for the MVP. Maris helped usher in a new Yankees dynasty of five consecutive pennants and won back-to-back MVP awards in the 1960 and 1961 seasons. This all-original road flannel with incredible wear has been photo-matched to Game 6 of the 1960 World Series in a picture with Maris, Mickey Mantle and Clete Boyer holding up their fingers in the clubhouse. The jersey has also been photo-matched to multiple images from the 1961 season including the game in which Maris hit his 59th home run of his historic season on September 20th in Baltimore before hitting #60 at home. On the front left tail is the Wilson manufacturer’s tag size “42” with washing instructions that has been partially frayed. Inside the collar is a strip tag reading “Maris ‘60” firmly attached in embroidered chain stitching. Across the chest reads “NEW YORK” and on the back is the player number “9” in navy blue felt. The player number has been reinforced by the team in multiple areas and photo evidence demonstrates the use on the “9” with pulling as well as Maris’ custom shortened sleeves. The jersey body shows some sun fading and a few scant holes. This jersey is properly tagged, was presented to us as game-used and in our opinion shows outstanding use. Accompanied by a LOA confirming the matches. An incredible piece of Yankee history.
